For those of you following my Instagram posts, this isn’t brand new, but I’m officially signed up for the Grandfather Mountain Marathon! It’s advertised as one of America’s toughest marathons and after looking at the course, I understand why! Over 2,000′ of elevation gain, with the second half having the worst of it.
I spent two years living in Boone when I went to grad school at Appalachian State University so I know the area and I’m really excited about this race. I got to do my first marathon around Pitt’s campus and now I can check off App State too!
